The Gary Lincoff Book Auction will be held on Sunday, December 4th at 1PM in TriBeCa, lower Manhattan, New York. Tickets are required to attend the auction and are now open to all mycophiles. Admission is $5. Proxy bidding for those who cannot attend either the live and silent auctions is available to everyone (see below).
Tickets will not be sold at the door.
The sale will include a live auction of choice books from Gary Lincoff’s library— many of them used and annotated by Gary, some signed and inscribed by the author(s).
There will also be a silent auction of useful, collectible and valuable books, some signed by the authors, many personalized by Gary.
There will also be hundreds of VERY reasonably priced books which you can purchase at the sale in a “Buy it now” capacity. A rough list of these “Buy it now” books is here:
All books have Gary’s bookplate on the inside front cover.
The live auction will begin around 2:00PM
